  •  Chomsky Defends 100% Free Speech (none)
    Chomsky doesn't defend the Holocaust, but he defends the right of free speech for people who want to deny the Holocaust. Right-wingers love to manipulate this into making people believe Chomsky defends the denial of the Holocaust itself. Nothing could be further from the truth. Chomsky has spent his life speaking out against mass murder.

    A similar trick is pulled when liberals vote against a law to make flag burning illegal. While you may not agree with flag burning, people should have the right to perform the flag burning act in a free country. So a vote against the right to burn flags is twisted into a vote for flag burning itself.
